What is the COVID-19 antibody test?

COVID-19 (coronavirus) antibody testing is a qualitative detection of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 to help identify individuals who have been exposed to the virus. The human body produces antibodies as part of our immune response to the virus.  It usually takes 10-14 days to produce enough antibodies to be detected in our blood.

Who should be tested?

The test is recommended for individuals (either previously tested or not previously tested) at least 14 days after the onset of symptoms.  It is also recommended for patients who believe you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.  In all cases, patient must be symptom free for at least 14 days.

What is the value of doing this test?

Testing for COVID-19 antibodies can help health departments understand the number of people exposed to the virus.

Testing also helps patients identify whether you have previously had the COVID-19 infection (antibody positive) or not (antibody negative) regardless of whether you have had symptoms or not.

Testing also allows those patients who have antibodies (antibody positive) to donate blood/plasma to help other critically ill Covid-19 patients fight off their infection.

UNDERSTAND YOUR COVID-19 ANTIBODY TEST RESULTS

Positive: You produced the COVID-19 antibody and have a high likelihood of prior infection. Some patients with past infections may not have experienced any symptoms. It is unclear at this time if a positive antibody infers immunity against future COVID-19 infection. Please continue with universal precautions: social distancing, hand washing and when applicable PPE such as masks or gloves.

Negative: You tested negative for COVID-19 antibody. This means you have not been infected with COVID-19. Please note, it may take 14-21 days to produce detectable levels of antibody presence. If you had symptoms consistent with COVID-19 within the past 3 weeks and tested negative, repeat testing in 1-2 weeks may yield a positive result.

Equivocal: Your test results could not be interpreted as Positive or Negative. The most common reasons for equivocal results are presence of an immune response but unclear if against the infection being tested for (COVID-19 in this case) or similar infections (the common cold is a type of coronavirus). If indicated, a repeat test may yield more reliable results.

How is this test conducted?

The test requires a blood draw.

Considerations for COVID-19 antibody testing

Currently, there are some limitations around the results of the test. A few things to consider:

  • If you have been in recent contact with the virus and you test negative for the antibody, it does not rule out a current or developing infection.
  • If you test positive, it could be due to past or present infection with a different coronavirus strain other than COVID-19.
  • Positive results do not currently indicate a person is immune from COVID-19. Additional studies are underway to determine if antibodies will prevent re-infection.

For uninsured patients, the federal government is paying for your test. Patients must sign attestation declaring no insurance coverage.

    AFC Urgent Care FAQs

    • Why does AFC provide two different COVID tests?

      We offer a rapid test because they provide highly reliable results on the spot; however, they do produce more false negatives than the RT-PCR COVID-19 Test. Doing both tests is our way of ensuring that you get the most accurate results possible without having to put your life on hold.

    • How long does it take to get a COVID test?

      We're able to get many patients in and out in a matter of minutes, but the length of time you'll spend in our clinic will depend on wait times that day.

    • How much does it cost to get a COVID test?

      That will ultimately depend on your insurance coverage. Presently, many people with insurance are able to get tested at no charge. If you’re uninsured, AFC’s cash pay prices are highly competitive – contact your local clinic for the details.
